Corporate lobbyists and conservatives online inflated the size of their D.C. protest by over 66 times.
Fox News put corporate greed ahead of the welfare of the American people — and lost the ratings crown as a result.
The last time I called Fox unpatriotic — even though it was an ironic gesture to make a point about how absurd it is to say something like this — my story was censored by conservatives that cannot and will not tolerate political dissent in any form. I don’t blame them, they can’t help but […]
I guess this started around the beginning of the Iraq war. A little before, or a little after, it doesn’t really matter. A news anchor from one of the 24/7 cable networks had just finished introducing his guest as a former chief weapons inspector for the United Nations. There were smiles and cordiality, these were […]
We’ve played this game long enough, liberals have gone beyond compromise well into capitulation. Anyone with a brain – which immediately eliminates birthers, deathers, tea party corporate whores and the 47% of Republicans that don’t think America was once a part of Pangea – knew from the outset that the GOP wasn’t going to support […]

Another 29% said they were not sure. Only 16% of Democrats and 23% of Independents said no. By region, the American […]
The story I wrote two days ago (mostly repeating the great commentary by Glenn Greenwald) regarding a deal struck between the corporate parents of MSNBC and Fox News seems to have widened last night with direct confirmation from MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann.
I hesitate to write about this issue because it has been covered so well thus far by Glenn Greenwald for Salon, and by Talking Points Memo, that anything I would contribute amounts to little more than a rerun. On the other hand, this is so disgusting, so embarrassing, and so explosive that it’s impossible not […]
Fox has refused for the second time in as many months to air a Presidential press conference, in violation of their responsibility to air news and programming of interest to the public in exchange for free use of the radio spectrum they use that is easily worth billions of dollars on the commercial market.
